The stories are familiar dystopian futures, some with artificial feeling tacked on hope, but the two-souled and Indigiqueer takes give them a different tone. Interesting, but no, there aren't really any efforts at portraying a future more comfortable for those who have to declare their gender, or anyone really.

Amazing collection of short stories. None of the authors were previously known to me except Darcie Little Badger so now I can research and find more of these authors works. Highly recommend.

Not really much of a story to this – Jonny is a gay indigenous boy growing up on the rez, and he moves to Winnipeg when he gets older, where he becomes a prostitute (my mistake – apparently not a prostitute, but a cybersex worker).

It was not in chronological order, and it was quite sexually graphic at times. The author narrated the audio – I rarely lost focus, but he did have a monotone voice. Turns out there might have been more of a “plot” than I thought (although, still kind of flimsy, I think), so maybe I did miss more than I thought. For some reason, I had it in my head that indigenous 2-spirit people were more accepted in indigenous cultures than gay people in white cultures, but (at least in this book) that doesn’t appear to be the case.… (mais)

This type of poetry was just going right over my head for the most part. There were definitely parts I got the message of and appreciated, like Late-Night Reruns and the superbly timed placements of "here i am" and its variations. But those moments are buried in what seemed to me to be streams of consciousness, which don't work for me, or the bizarre computer-speak formatting that I'm sure a more poetry-oriented person than I am could appreciate the artistry of.
